Concentration in Environmental Engineering

In this Section

A professional concentration in Environmental Engineering is available to all undergraduate students. The professional concentration enables students to satisfy the accreditation requirements of their particular major while focusing their electives on pertinent courses for environmental engineering. Electives used to satisfy requirements of the concentration include a set of science and engineering courses that reflect the sub disciplines of Environmental Engineering as defined by the ABET, Inc. Students receive a Bachelor of Science degree in their major with a professional concentration in Environmental Engineering.

CE majors that are in the Environmental concentration are recommended to take ES 250 Electrical Science and ES 340 Thermodynamics rather than ES 223 Rigid Body Dynamics for their ES electives.  In addition to the required courses, it is recommended that STAT 383 Applied Statistics I be taken as a mathematics elective course for this professional concentration.  A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is required in the courses taken for the professional concentration.  At least one-fourth of the credit hours required must be completed at Clarkson University, unless the Dean of the Coulter School of Engineering approves an exception.
